I qualified as a fitness instructor whilst living in Edinburgh in 2003. I worked as an instructor for Greens Health & Fitness Club where I took a number of classes and inductions each week. In 2006 I moved back to my home town of Brighton & Hove where I secured a job as Assistant Manager of De Vere Grand (5-star) Brighton Health & Fitness Spa. My job took me in part away from cutting edge fitness and more into organizational roles but I never lost interest in Sport and Fitness.

I decided to complete a Premier Advanced Personal Trainer Course at level 3. Upon completion I  moved to Fitness First Brighton to which I am employed to date. Working for Fitness First has helped me gain a great deal of experience with training many different clients and proven record when helping clients achieve many different goals.


I am a keen footballer and enjoy all team sports. I play for a local team for which I am the fitness coach as well. I enjoy surfing, beach volleyball, tennis, badminton, swimming and triathlons.
